The Mobile County Sheriff’s Office in Alabama is receiving backlash for posting a photo on Facebook of a Christmas tree they decorated with “thug shots.” These “thug shots” are of people who have been arrested in the last year by the county office. The caption read: 

“We have decorated our Tree with THUGSHOTS to show how many Thugs we have taken off the streets of Mobile this year! We could not have done it without our faithful followers!"

In the era of Black Lives Matter, this was to say the very least, an incredibly dumb thing to do. Like, what were these guys thinking posting that?
